About this event

Trumpeters Tine Thing Helseth and Marco Blaauw are the soloists in the London premiere of Matthias Pintscher’s Chute d’étoiles with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. The composer makes his Proms conducting debut in his explosive musical homage to the great German artist Anselm Kiefer’s 2007 installation in the Grand Palais, Paris, a grand experiment in weight and movement conjuring a shower of falling stars. The Basque melodies of Ravel’s Rapsodie espagnole and Stravinsky’s first Ballet Russes commission The Firebird complete a programme of daring orchestral innovations.
